# Four pavers

Four pavers would pave the square in 18 days. How many pavers do you need to add to done work in 12 days?

Result

n =  2

#### Solution:

4*18 = 12*(4+n)

12n = 24

n = 2

Calculated by our simple equation calculator.

Leave us a comment of example and its solution (i.e. if it is still somewhat unclear...):

Idk

the total "power" (as I like to call it) is 4 x 18, which is 72.
You divide that by 12, giving you six.

The calculator is wrong. Six pavers are needed.

Dr Math
Six pavers are needed, but we need to add only 6-4=2 pavers

Re @idk

4 * 18 = 12(4+n)
72 = 12(4+n)
-----------------
12
6 -4 =4 - 4+n
6 - 4 = n
2 = n

#### To solve this example are needed these knowledge from mathematics:

Looking for help with calculating harmonic mean? Looking for a statistical calculator? Do you have a linear equation or system of equations and looking for its solution? Or do you have quadratic equation?
